The the new durst Alpha series was a visitor' s favourite at ITMA 2015 in Milan (c) 2016 TexData
Durst, specialist in industrial inkjet applications, will be presenting the company's comprehensive textile portfolio and providing information about the new Alpha series at Stand D15 in Hall 4 at the Heimtextil 2016 trade show. The latest generation of super-multi-pass inkjet printer systems for the digital production of household textiles and fashions features printing widths of 190 to 330 cm and can be configured with up to eight colors and 64 Alpha-S print heads.
With a native resolution of 600 dpi and print speeds of 460 to 610 running meters per hour, Durst is positioning the Alpha series as direct competition to traditional silkscreen printing, naturally including all the advantages of digital printing. The Durst Alpha series features continuous ink circulation in all ink circuits to ensure consistent ink quality and reliable readiness for use of the print heads. If necessary, the Alpha-S print heads can be replaced by the customer in a short amount of time.
A new, intelligent feed system which adapts itself to different textile materials and roll circumferences was developed for the Alpha series. A patented inline spray system enables the material to be pretreated chemically before printing. Durst is offering its own OEKO-TEK Standard 100-certifiable ink systems and a GOTS-certified reactive ink system for the Alpha series.
To provide users with greater flexibility and economy in production, Durst also developed a new pigment ink (Alpha Ink P), which can be used on a host of different textiles and which impresses with its soft feel after printing. Also, no pretreatment or post-treatment is necessary with standard materials such as cotton and polyester. In addition to excellent print quality, high flexibility, industrial productivity and scalability, the Alpha series is able to provide process solutions. The newly developed Durst Textile Workflow System simplifies precise color reproduction on different textile materials and enables continuous quality control and one-step profiling for new materials and color adaptations.
